Intelligent Grid Platform - A modular software framework that digitises and automates existing grid planning and operation processes.

The Intelligent Grid Platform (IGP) is a digital assistance system that supports grid operators in their technical grid planning and operation processes. By connecting multiple, formerly isolated data sources and using data cleaning algorithms based on machine learning, the IGP creates a digital twin of the entire grid.

IGP comprises three major steps: 1)Establish transparency: The IGP links formerly isolated data sources and uses machine learning algorithms to correct data errors automatically and create validated digital grid models. 2) Automate Processes: With the IGP, grid planning and operation workflows of distribution grid operators (e.g. evaluating connection requests, determine cost-efficient grid expansion measures) are largely automated and significantly accelerated. 3)Optimising smart grids: Technologies like batteries or demand side management enable a more flexible system operation.

Key features

  • Provides transparency about grid states in real time
  • Renewable energies can be integrated into the power grid faster.
  • Could have saved more than 50,000 t CO2 in the year 2018 in Germany alone

Profitability

  • By automating grid planning & operation processes, grid operators can save more than 50% personal costs.
